Cell/Tissue Culture for Tissue Regeneration
Tissue regeneration with stem cells is a major focus in the laboratory. There are a number of ongoing investigations to determine the properties of different stem cells and to select the best stem cell/carrier combinations to grow tissues like bone, ligament and cartilage. Members of the laboratory are also studying differences in stem cells from species like the horse and cat. This information is important to develop stem cell therapies for the repair of tissue damaged by injury or disease.
